Selection of a car depends on a number of aspects.

If the car condition is good, you may go ahead.

Difference between Vx and Vxi is basically of Power Windows.

As far as the parts problem is concerned, this should not be of any concern as generally, Maruti parts are available everywhere.

Answer by Subhash Gupta 10 October 2009

When you buy a car you should check how much KMS run and the General condition. Also, well maintained cars doesn't
have any problems evenif KMS are little more.
The difference between VX and VXi is that VX = Hydralic Steering and VXi = Electronic Power Steering (EPS).
As per MarutiUdyog Company they will provide their vehicle spare parts upto 15 years eventhough the model will be discontinued.

1. You be assured that you will not repent buying the Zen Vxi 2003 model, as it is in a well maintained condition. Also the main difference between Vx and Vxi are the power windows and electronic steering, in Vxi models. And regarding spare parts Maruti will keep supplying spares for its discontinued vehicles at least for 15yrs from the year of discontinuation. Regarding n e other queries feel free to contact me . I will be glad to assist you.

Expert`s comment:

You can go ahead with Zen. No need to worry about availability of parts for . It will be available for many years more.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 10 October 2009

The Difference between VX and VXI is,

VX :

1. No Power Steering
2. Power Windows
3. AC

VXI : (Fully Loaded)
1. Power Steering
2. Power Windows

If you ask me I will recommend you to go for Vxi. Not VX.

But Zen is a very good car and it is maintenance free.

I am using Zen Lx 2000 Model , from last 9 year, till date, I am not faced any problem. The Engine is very much Genuine.

Zen may looks very small car, but it is a comfort and export quality car. I used to travel 3 times/ year, from Bangalore to Nagercoil (about 800kms), but I never faced any problem. Really it is a good choice"ZEN"

In 2005 my brother bought Santro Xing-Xp, but u no one thing he is spending min. 2-3k / month for maintenance.

And maruthi spare parts are very much available in the market, no issues on availablity.

Go for Zen and Enjoy Driving ...!!!!!


Answer by Sam 10 October 2009

Hello, go ahead for zen vx. Don't worry about availability of spares. It is good car.

Answer by Anil Kumar Panda 10 October 2009

ZEN is an excellent Car. You may surely Go ahead. Only thing to check whether it had an history of any major Accident. Correctness of KM reading also need to be examined. Personally I am using a ZEN VX 2000 Model and I am extremely happy so much that my family does not want to buy Maruti A Star by exchanging the existing ZEN VX ( Fascinaton !)
